The laser cut parts are made from paper and/or cardoard. I would rather use laser cut paper than pre-formed plastic any day.

When I first started building with paper and card I considered using plastic parts for added detail but after plenty of practice and tips I learnt from some highly skilled modelers on this forum and others I'll always try to do it with paper first. Although I have to admit I'm a huge fan of using wooden dowel and skewers etc instead of hand rolling tiny tubes, that's onearea where I'm just not skilled, nor do I care to be.

So, I was in a hurry with my last post and did not read it well. I see now that Teamski
was most likely referring to the mast and lines being made of paper.

I will go back to my coffee now and be silent.....

I guess the old saying "let your conscience be your guide" applies here............if it helps any I do that quite a bit because my skills are not that good.

My philosophy exactly!I reserve the right to try to construct certain components out if paper to see if the results are viable.

It's like fusion cooking I guess. Use whatever technique/material necessary for the best result.
